LAUSANNE, March 29. /TASS/. There still remain certain chances of achieving a framework agreement between Iran and the international sextet (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) within the established deadline by the end of March, a source in the Iranian delegation has told TASS.
"At the Vienna meeting last November it was agreed that toward the end of March the parties were to achieve a fundamental solution of the Iranian nuclear program-related issues. There still is such a possibility. Over the past few days we made tangible progress in negotiations," the source said.
The source recalled that a meeting of the sextet’s and Iran’s foreign ministers was due on Sunday.
"If a fundamental agreement is achieved, the foreign ministers might be able to formalize the success as some sort of a framework agreement in writing or in some other fashion," he added.
According to agreements achieved by the sextet’s foreign ministers with Iran in Vienna in November 2014 a fundamental understanding regarding ways of resolving controversies over the Iranian nuclear program should serve as the basis of a future comprehensive treaty, to be signed no later than June 30, 2015.
